Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Well, I have Mandrake 8.1 installed now, with the help of previous replies. Many thanks.
I typed a letter using Abiword and when I saved it, it ended up on the desktop of my home page, Konquerer. I went to the Konsole and tried to create a directory to put the letter in but 'mkdir' gave me a reply 'access denied'. (Konsole show my name as the local host).
So how do I save my letters, please?
Incidentally, I bought a book given a glowing reference at Linux.org and found it was good at telling me what Linux could do but very bad at telling me how to do it.
Hi! You've over-estimated my intelligence and understanding of Linux - easy enough to do under any circumstances.
So, may I go back a step? Say I've typed out a letter and printed it successfully and am sitting looking at it on screen. I want to save it in a directory called 'Trees'. What do I click on, or what keys do I press, to save it? And what should happen?
